We all love the beautiful, beastly exhaust notes of the 720 horsepower Pagani Huayra. Alex Goy at XCAR Films was lucky enough to have the chance to take the Huayra for a test drive and shares his thoughts of this exotic Italian supercar in this video.
As Goy explains, this $1 million+ supercar is like a somewhat more refined Pagani Zonda, but everything about it is focused purely on speed, from the active aerodynamics, the V12 twin-turbocharged AMG engine, and the lightweight Carbotanium (a lightweight composite of beta titanium alloy, carbon and platinum) used throughout the car. The engineers even chose to forego the use of a dual-clutch transmission to save the additional 150 pounds required for the second clutch.
